Steenberg has a lot more to offer than just award winning wines. As the oldest farm in the Constantia Valley, it's also home to the Steenberg Hotel, Catharina's Restaurant, a luxury day spa and an 18-hole golf course. The Steenberg manor house and buildings on the farm have been declared a national monument, but the modern cellar with a viniteque built in 1996 enables wine to be kept in perfect conditions and a production capacity of 70 000 cases to be reached.
This estate within the Constantia Valley offers a wide range of cultivars such as Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Shiraz, Nebbiolo including Sauvignon Blanc, its flagship cultivar
When wine tasting, you can choose between the bar, cozy lounge or executive tasting room (ideal for larger groups). These beautiful, modern areas lead out to reflection pools on the terrace and ‘sensory’ gardens. Sip various selections of wine with cheese, food or tapas or take a peek at the wine making process on one of their cellar tours. Don't be surprised if you end up spending more than just one afternoon on this magnificent estate.
